This SSHRC-funded project explores the help-seeking behaviours of female survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) in Ghana. The project aims to uncover the individual and structural/institutional barriers to help-seeking by Ghanaian women with experiences of IPV. This project is an extension of a previous SSHRC project on the socio-cultural underpinnings of marital violence in Ghana.
This research emphasizes the idea of impact and change. More specifically, it grows out of an interest in bringing equity and social justice to marginalized and vulnerable populations of which women, youth, victims of violence and HIV positive persons are a significant part. It strongly reflects his vision of bringing positive change to individuals, communities and societies.
